Hello dear friends!
I always sink into crochet in January.
After spending the last two months knitting
lots of houseshoes for Christmas presents, it is always nice to head into
a crochet project.
I have been indulging myself in these simple scarves.
It is very enjoyable to be free and creative with the colors.
I am using Caron's Simply Soft yarn. There are so many
great colors to choose from and the weight is just right!
I simply single crochet every row! Changing colors at
the end of each row, I leave a 5 or 6 inch tail at each
end for braiding into fringe.
Here's one I made for Lindsey in greens and blues.
If you'd like to make one yourself, I start with a chain of 276.
Pick any range of colors you like. I like to use neutrals
in between the rows of brighter colors. I call these
my Jewel Scarves.
My New Year's resolution this year was to read!
I love to read, but it somehow feels like a luxury that
I rarely took time for. Well, this year I am taking the
time and I look forward to soaking up a lot of words of
wisdom and enjoyment.
If it weren't for Pinterest I am sure I would have a lot more
time to read, but there is so much wonderful inspiration there,
who can resist?!
Thanks so much for stopping by and spending part of your
day with me.
Wishing you much happiness!
